Consciousness is a singularity phasing within all beings through this life. The more you are aware that the alchemy of your thoughts shifts your environment, the less real this world becomes. Our existence isn't about learning to 'accept' reality, but rather remembering our power to create it.
Sadly, we have forgotten how to press our fingers on the material planes pulse and feel the beat of the universe connecting us all. The greatest illusion of mankind is that we have limitations and that we are separated.
An individual that experiences the awakening process within waking life starts to feel that something isn't quite right about their reality. You begin to feel surreal moments of lucidity where your consciousness is creating your reality rather than perceiving it linearly or allowing life to just happen to you. You come off autopilot and your thoughts and state of being are tuned into a higher frequency, you are in control.
Be aware of your breath, the thoughts that cycle around your brain, and your environment. You will think twice before behaving and reacting instinctively and the same old ways.
Take everything in and appreciate life as what it is, connect with your consciousness within these moments for these are the spaces between moments where you can see it all and create anything.
